On behalf of College Sport Wellington, Orienteering Wellington and Orienteering Hutt Valley have organised the following series of events for the 2021 CSW competition. The events are open to all school students irrespective of orienteering experience, age or fitness. Individuals are welcome to come along, and all help will be provided. Students are invited to attend the whole series, or just a couple of events.
As in 2020, this year we will hold a CSW sprint series as well as the traditional orienteering series. The sprint series will be held on Wednesday evenings during term 1 at various schools in the region. The traditional Sunday series starts in term 2 and will continue through to term 3. These events are held on Sunday mornings between 11.00 am and 1.00 pm at various parks in greater Wellington.
For those wishing to compete outside the Wellington area, all secondary school students are also eligible to compete in the North Island Secondary School Championships and in the New Zealand Secondary School Championships which will be held in the term 3 holidays.
CSW Sprint Orienteering Series
The CSW sprint orienteering series is a series of sprint distance (shorter, urban) events. This series is a good chance for new orienteers to have a go at orienteering in an urban environment on Wednesday evenings, with some trickier courses to challenge the more experienced orienteers. Start times are from 6 pm – 7 pm. Please note these locations are preliminary and will be confirmed in early 2021.

CSW Classic Orienteering Series
The CSW Orienteering Series is run in association with club events put on by Orienteering Wellington and Orienteering Hutt Valley. These events are traditional orienteering events held in parks around the greater Wellington region on Sundays from 11 am – 1 pm. These events provide an opportunity for students new to orienteering to experience non-urban events and learn how to orienteer, while providing a challenge to experienced orienteers.
